other learning opportunities

Sometimes an in-person training just isn’t feasible. We’ve compiled a list of online learning opportunities that may meet your needs.

The Active Implementation Hub

The Active Implementation Hub is a free, online learning environment for use by any stakeholder — practitioners, educators, coaches, trainers, purveyors — involved in active implementation and scaling up of programs and innovations. The site is sponsored by the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The goal of the site is to increase the knowledge and improve the performance of persons engaged in actively implementing any program or practice.

Advanced Topics Webinars from the Implementation Science Program at NCI

Listen in to the webinar series as leaders in the field discuss advanced dissemination and implementation research topics and answer questions from the community.

Dissemination and Implementation Narrative Library

The Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Narrative Library from Make Research Matter, contains video vignettes for researchers and practitioners who are interested in disseminating or implementing evidence-based practices, programs or tools. 

Knowledge Translation Canada

Knowledge Translation Canada is a network of Canadian experts in knowledge translation. The network has several training programs available to graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, physicians and the general public including a seminar series, a summer institute (in-person) and an introduction to systematic reviews and meta-analysis.

KT Connects – Knowledge Translation Webinar Series

KT Connects is a series of monthly beginner-level knowledge translation (KT) webinars hosted by the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research (MSFHR) and Arthritis Research Canada. Hear KT scientists, stakeholders and practitioners discuss the basics of KT, how KT relates to patients and the public, and KT in health policy-making and clinical practice.

MEASURE Evaluation – Fundamentals of Implementation Research

A 2-3 hour training module offering an introduction to the language, concepts, tools and strategies used in implementation research. The MEASURE Evaluation is funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID).

Research to Reality Cyber Seminars

Research to Reality is an online community of practice that links cancer control practitioners and researchers, as well as provides opportunities for discussion, learning, and enhanced collaboration on moving research into practice. These seminars must be filtered with the terms “dissemination” or “implementation” in the search bar.

VA QUERI Cyberseminar series

This series about implementation science features presenters from VA/HSR&D’s Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI). Implementation science focuses on research that examines methods to accelerate the implantation of evidence-based clinical practices in routine healthcare settings. Faculty will share information about QUERI implementation processes, methods and lessons learned. Those who may benefit from attending these sessions include clinicians, researchers, administrators, and policymakers who are interested in learning more about implementation science and the tools needed to promote evidence-based medicine. Past seminars are available from the archive (filter by QUERI series of interest).

Webinar: Dissemination and Implementation Science: What is it & Why is it Critical to Translational Science?

This webinar was initiated by the Dissemination and Implementation Workgroup of the Collaboration Engagement Task Force of the Clinical Translational Science Award Program. It features Drs. Enola Proctor and Stephen Bartels who provide a succinct overview of the field of implementation science, as well as an example of a research project that illustrates implementation science aims, methods, and outcomes. The webinar is intended for researchers, administrators, and students who are not familiar with IS but want to know more about how evidence-based interventions are put into practice.
